of an elephant although all of america's police force is part of the ninety nine percent captain lewis says cops secretly supporting o.-w. ass face dire consequences by going public oh a tremendous fear of losing their job being disciplined being fired and then what they do everybody in a ninety nine percent has that fear and police officers also they cannot risk they have children they have wives what will they do what so far there are no jobs available the nighttime raid on zuccotti park and subsequent arrest of dozens of journalists covering the story are among many reasons captain lewis says he temporarily transplanted to manhattan that's close to dictatorship when you actually the media. has with dictators around the world and that is very scary brutal scare tactics such as pepper spray tons and flash grenades canisters have been used against occupy camp route the u.s. oakland california resembles something of an urban war zone this fall leaving

retaliation for imposing further sanctions over its nuclear program middle east expert in journalist of some kind of chandan believes this latest spat with iran is just the start of a bigger western campaign. the west is not engaged in war preparations just against iran which they have been they've invaded an occupied iran's two neighboring countries like afghanistan and on the one side and iraq on the other the west is engaged in a constant project of constant war and domination against all people who resist their domination so iran and syria are different from the cards and a clear conflict racial in goal for the whole middle east that this has the potential for growing but that is the agenda right now very clearly they want change all across africa libya was the start and look at the pacific and asia region the new the new troops new u.s. troops already sent from australia listen to clinton she is saying that the critical places for u.s. domination is not iraq and afghanistan but in asia what's emerging right now is
6:10 am
a historic time for the next ten fifteen years where britain an american movie going down economically and militarily and they know china and russia are merging so they're really feeling that now is the crisis period to make sure that they can dominate as much as possible through sanctions and war i mean it's all it's all you know it's any means necessary i mean whether they do it through sanctions or war or funding opposition movements it's all the same they want complete domination as soon as possible. well new tough measures against iran are dominating a meeting of european foreign ministers with more sanctions are expected to be imposed but british foreign minister has accused iran's government of supporting the repression in syria and said there's a link between what's happening in both countries let's get some more details on this now and talk with national consultant and author adrian live for us from going to thank you for coming on the program today the u.k. and norway have already closed their missions into iran and many other european nations to follow suit if you think there's possibly any link between their mass
6:11 am
withdrawal and israel's earlier warnings of carrying out of bombing attack in december on iran. well there is a pattern and everything seems to center on iran basically but it is a pattern we are seeing throughout the whole middle east and we've seen it also in north africa this is a war by the west against most of the islamic countries now no doubt that israel has been threatening for a unilateral military intervention into iran for many years now and the u.k. seems to be spirit in this this whole process by you now threatening military action than so are they've been doing this is the early november the so-called plans and the u.s. seems to be just a step further back because they know that when things get very hard we probably will abort in a rather than syria the buck always starts would be u.s. military and so yes this definitely is probably all. generalized war by the west
6:12 am
against the arab muslim states and i think this is ultimately part of a western war against arab states that if i can just move on here severing embassy ties with iran wouldn't allow these states to be inside the country where they can as some might say keep an eye on it what are the possible consequences of this diplomatic isolation could have for iran or is it just simply a smokescreen and the west all along is it is playing these cards of isolation and sanctions and alleged nuclear weapons program going all in all if you are saying they're just looking for a war. well it's a very complex war that's what they are waging the greater complexity in war means diplomat are the fighting on the diplomatic stage on the financial stage as they have been doing with economic sanctions against iran and its central bank and very much so we can see how they are now preparing the whole scene so asthe just by. a
6:13 am
day that will live in infamy sort of like pearl harbor they took our embassy knowing that in the public eye or in the public mind this brings our memories of the one nine hundred seventy nine taking of the u.s. embassy in tehran no embassies should never be taken no doubt about that is not the proper way to go but we don't really quite know what it is that is happening in iran would be embassy where there are local advocates was we've seen agitation throughout the country and for example. the column in the speaker for iran in a way said that this is also the result of several decades of behavior on the part of the u.k. trying to dominate irad and he is very right as we must remember that britain invaded iran in world war one it invaded iran in world war two they tried to invade iran in one thousand fifty one but will start by will have it states and then the eisenhower administration and the bush administration may be free remove violent we orchestrated a who. our military takeover there are will in all of the us out of course as you
6:14 am
as you say that we also have the iranian embassy siege in london iraq roughly three decades ago i mean i just suggested there is a much broader picture here when it comes to how the west is dealing with iran but when we focus on the issue of sanctions sanctions are a tried and tested tactic of the west but are they the most effective approach to solving the issue surrounding tehran's nuclear ambitions. i very much doubt it because sanctions will only arsons iran does have its back its back in part by china also in part by russia which seems to be getting fed up with the problem of the boat on the part of nato i don't think sanctions would do the trick that's why the fear of the real peril is that there might be might end up resorting to unilateral military invasion but we must remember one thing the united states americans polled group which is the pm of deceit and lies the ranee of invented chess which is a game of strategy and intelligence so right now we're if we you mentioned russia
6:15 am
just a few minutes ago russia saying it wants the standoff to be solved using diplomacy as we say and certainly is what you're suggesting the west but ultimately has no intention of diplomacy what stakes to russia hold in this ongoing the west versus iran dispute no doubt russia at some point has to draw the line in a way for god for the rest of the world there is a balancing factor against unilateral our western interventionism especially on the part of the united states britain and israel has no doubt china and russia will have a very important part to play in although they have been very cautious and very serious about the whole way they have been approaching this but we approach libya the way they are approaching syria some point russia will draw the line and i think that that will see what sort of powers draw back in stand or we might have a much more generalized war in the region which could escalate to global
6:16 am
proportions so we are seeing the west playing with fire international consultant and author. live for us from one of sorry so many things. well i still to come for you this hour here on r.t. we report from the barricades in kosovo where an increasing number of calls of most serbs have been applying for russian citizenship you can find out why shortly. sixteen minutes past the hour here in moscow italy has found itself in a severe economic crisis with the country's debt reaching over two trillion euros but at a time when italians want to cut costs and create jobs the government has another plan in the works which critics say is nothing more than quote economic suicide. for three points. this is the end i believe playing at the combine it might be. you could put it still in the development stage the final assembly line is the peacekeeping in italy. everything's cool thing to
